Archie Is Doing A Digital Collection Of Stories About Wrestling, Confirming Our ‘Best Timeline’ Status
Those of you who haven't been obsessively keeping track of which Archie Comics are available to buy at 3:00 AM might not be aware of this, but the publisher has been putting out pretty inexpensive digital collections for a while now that are all built around a certain theme. There's a bunch of them up, including one that features my beloved Elevenaire, but this week, they're topping them all with Archie & Friends: Wrestle Maniacs.
That's right, brother: A bunch of Archie comics about the King of Sports, professional wrestling. And, I suppose, that greco-roman stuff that they do in high schools and the Olympics, which, let's face it, is obviously the inferior version due to a lack of zombies, dragons, and steel chairs used as weapons. Check out a preview below!
The timing for this one could not be better --- it's out on Friday, just in time for WrestleMania season to kick into high gear in anticipation of WWE's biggest event of the year on the 29th --- and lest you think that's a happy coincidence, check out the logo for the Archie book. Also, who knew Archie was that disturbingly ripped?
Here's the official info:
